Marriage

Marriage, also called matrimony or wedlock, is a socially or ritually recognised union between spouses that establishes rights and obligations between those spouses, as well as between them and any resulting biological or adopted children and affinity (in-laws and other family through marriage). The definition of marriage varies around the world not only between cultures and between religions, but also throughout the history of any given culture and religion, evolving to both expand and constrict in who and what is encompassed, but typically it is principally an institution in which interpersonal relationships, usually sexual, are acknowledged or sanctioned. In some cultures, marriage is recommended or considered to be compulsory before pursuing any sexual activity.

Bismillah,

Asalamu Alakyom, Please refer to the following answer:

Also it is not recommended for you to marry a person from the sect who refers to itself as Ahlus Sunnah unless you can make him Shia. It could also be haram if it would cause you misguidance too. It is better to marry a spouse who will raise any potential children on the love of Ahlul Bayt (peace be upon them) and disassociation of their enemies. I have met many people of both mixed Shia-Sunni parents and in most cases, the children take after the father in the Sunni way or become confused. 

In this case, your parents could be rejecting the person for the above reasons. And when you say 'you like' such a person, you must ask yourself what this is based on? Is it due to over stepping the Islamic boundaries such as how he looks, or is it due to his religion? If it is for the wrong reasons, then one should not pursue such a marriage especially if it may be based more off lust or wordly reasons. 

May Allah grant you success

According to Fiqh i.e. jurisprudence, a boy has no need to acquire the consent of either of parents, so he can marry any girl even if it is against his parents' consent.
Please bear in mind that I'm not answering according to moral and sociological advice!
As for the second part of your question, we have nothing like that in Islam and as soon as a person dies his/her connection to their possessions is removed and the properties automatically go into the account of the heirs, so if one is going to deprive an heir of getting their properties, they must transfer whatever they have in their lifetime to other people.

The son should keep the respect of his parents in every matter but it is not obligatory on him to get their approval for his marriage. Father's approval is required in the virgin marriage.

Parents are not allowed to abandon their son just because he did not marry according to their wish. Abandoning any relative is a major sin in Islam.

No one is allowed to deprive  his son or daughter from inheritance as far as they are Muslims. 

Wassalam.

In such situations, the only way that remains is doing temporary marriage.
Resisting this desire is not easy at all.
That's why in Islam there are two types of marriage.
Although the permanent is the best, the temporary is prescribed for those who can't afford and are not able to do it permanently

There is no valid marriage in Islam unless both man and woman are Baaligh (Mature). Even if the father under certain circumstances wants to save the future of his child in a form of marriage, such marriage is not valid unless the child grows up and become mature then willingly decides to go for this marriage.

First of all we need to be sure that she is really a woman. This assurance does not come from her recent appearance which looks like a woman but must come
through medical confirmed results that the DNA belongs to a female
human being. When a person is a female by genetic structure but
because of abnormality she looked like a male and then she went
through a surgery to remove the abnormal organs and develop the female
organs, in this case she is a female and marriage between a Muslim man
and a Muslim woman is possible. But if she does not have female DNA
and the operation was just for removing the male organs and creating or implanting 
female organs instead, she is in fact not a female, so there is no
question of marriage between a Muslim man and such a person.

Same situation applies on a woman who undergoes a surgery to look like a man wth out a DNA confirmation about the real gender.

Islamic rules are the most realistic rules known in the human history. It save guards the interest of human beings in all the stages of their life and avoids them any expected or unexpected harm. Marriage of the virgin girl can be influenced by her emotion because of her delicate nature which can be misused by some men. That is why, a condition was put to assure that her emotions are not been misused. Nevertheless, this condition of her father's permission is not an absolute condition, but it has exceptions and exemptions e.g. when the virgin girl is mature enough and emotionally stable, and she needs to get married to a suitable believer, and her father is refusing the marriage for reasons which are not approved by Islam, then she will be entitled to get married to a suitable believer to save herself from sin.

As both of you are Muslims, Alhamdulillah, marriage is very simple and
easy according to the Islamic rules. Both of you should agree an
amount which is called Mahr which is the right of the female. If she
is a virgin, means if it is her first marriage, then she needs the
permission of her father. But if her father refuses for any reason
which is not valid in Islam to object on the marriage, then she is
allowed to get marriage to a suitable Muslim believer to save herself
from sinful acts. After agreeing the Mahr, you need a person who knows
Arabic language properly to recite the marriage agreement which is
called Nikah or Aqd of marriage. In this marriage agreement she, or
anyone on her behalf, says in Arabic, that she agrees to become your
wife for the agreed Mahr (ZAWWAJTUKA NAFSI ALAL MAHR AL MA'LOM) and you or someone on your behalf, say in
Arabic “I accept the marriage for the said Mahr”(QABILTU AL TAZWEEJ ALAL MAHR AL MA'LOOM). Witness of two pious men is recommend
but not compulsory in marriage.

May Allah SWT grant you both the best
and keep you blessed with more Imaan and prosperity.

Wassalaam.

Diabetes is not a health condition which disrupts
marriage. If the health condition has got an effect to disrupt the
marriage then it must be disclosed before marriage. But any condition
which does not harm the marriage is not compulsory to be declared. Of
course it is good to inform the groom about it but if the bride did not
inform that she has Diabetes, she has not done anything which invalidates the marriage.

Wassalaam.
